Folks in Las Vegas are happy to see the end of 2011. So happy they're lighting off fireworks. My dogs are going crackers, barking at every noise. Oh.my.word.......
We are doing the low blood pressure thing for the moment. It was even lower earlier--felt funky. Won't be long til it tries to work its way up.
Today turned out to be a weird day. I got up really early so I could get all my uploads done. I've had it take as much as 4 hours to get them done, so I have to start really early if I have to go somewhere. I needed to leave here by 10:30 and, of course, I had to get cleaned up before I could leave. So 5:30 was as late as I could sleep, no matter how tired I was. I got everything uploaded in just under 3 hours so I had time to do a post in the forum at A Cherry on Top to show off my kits for this week.
I was supposed to be with the munchkins for a couple of hours. Eventually, I was asked to stay for 6-7 hours which rammed me butt up against blood pressure pill time. As it turned out, I left after just a couple of hours. So, I managed to get home before I needed to worry about a pill or about having a headache.
I gave myself a little treat today. I ran up the street to Jack in the Box and bought myself a hamburger. I've been wanting one for weeks. I think it's been about 4 months since I've had a hamburger. Isn't that un-American? So, that was my little gift to me!
I also gave the van a shock today. I actually put more than half a tank of gas in it! I know that hasn't happened in 2011. I've been gradually trying to increase the amount of gasoline I buy. I want to get to the point where I fill it up and a week later fill it up again. Of course, I expect I won't spend much once it's filled up because I try to be very careful that I don't drive much.
I checked yesterday and found that the good Lord (my sales manager, LOL) had increased my December 2011 sales 466% of what they were in December 2010. Now that's some increase! But, it gets better. I checked tonight and more sales hit today and my December 2011 sales are now 514% of what they were in December 2010. It pays to have a good sales manager!!!!!!! Fact is, December 2011 is my second highest month's sales ever!
Well, it's quite cold here in this corner. I'm wrapped in an afghan and I'm still chilly. I haven't been able to stop thinking about that radiant heat heater that I saw at Costco. I never even checked the price because I knew I didn't have the wherewithal to get it. But, I sure haven't forgotten it! I'm going to go crawl into bed and see if I can get a little sleep before there's another onslaught of barking due to more fireworks. I'm expecting sleep may be tough to come by tonight which, on top of last night's short sleep, should leave me in FINE shape for tomorrow, LOL. But, hey, at least it's warm there! Goodnight.
